Mayr-Melnhof Holz Group introduces new organizational structure in the Sawn Timber Division to prepare for further growth


In February 2022, the Austrian based Mayr-Melnhof Holz Group acquired a majority stake in the Swedish sawmill group Bergkvist Siljan, therefore becoming the third largest sawmill group in Europe. Following the completion of the first integration phase, the timber industrial group is now adapting the organizational structure of the Sawn Timber Division to meet the significantly increased sales volume.


With immediate effect, a dynamic team with long-term experience is now jointly responsible for all sawmills of the Mayr-Melnhof Holz Group in Europe. This new organization will enable the company to harvest the full potential of the acquisition and establishing a more efficient business set-up.


The new management has set itself ambitious goals and intends to continue the impressive growth of the Sawn Timber Division. The management team consists of

  • Franz Schwarzauger for Log Procurement & Energy Products,
  • Reinhard Zörnpfenning for Operations and
  • Per-Ragnar Bergkvist for Sales & Marketing


At the same time, Josef Steiner, formerly responsible for sales and marketing of sawn timber at
Mayr Melnhof Holz, will leave the company. Anders Nilsson will remain as the CEO of Bergkvist Siljan and support the management team of the Sawn Timber Division.
